Camilo Pavone on the FA of Cam's Cool Chimney. Pho...


Exciting climb. Look for the recess, the route starts on the right hand side. Start up the mossy corner up to the roof, crux may be moving into the roof. Follow the improbable traverse out of the roof that is pretty spectacular.


In the middle of the Good Book Wall, look for the obvious recess in the rock. CCC climbs the right side of the recess.

Really fun, but it's definitely a dry season climb!

Fun climb in an unusual rock configuration. The handholds for the two cruxy moves just before the roof, and the handholds for the traverse out from under the route were all wet -- but sufficiently positive that the climb was still do-able.

Exit from the traverse is also interesting (consider using handholds on both sides of the passage).

Doing it on Top-Rope without directional protection placements subjects to climber to a big swing if they fail on the hardest moves below the roof or at the start of the traverse. So consider in advance what the chance is that they might hit something if they swing.

Traverse seemed harder that than the traverse on Horseman in the Gunks, so a difficulty rating of 5.6 feels about right.
